Bernie Sanders: I’m Not Exactly a Career Politician’

Bernie money out of politics bribes votersLiar.  You have fed at the public trough your entire adult life and whose only job was to get more votes than the other guy (see image).  Really??  Twenty-five years in the US Congress and you’re NOT a professional politician?  Now that takes chutzpah to actually believe. From Wikipedia:

After settling in Vermont in 1968, Sanders ran unsuccessful third-party campaigns for governor and U.S. senator in the early to mid-1970s. As an independent, he was elected mayor of Burlington, Vermont’s most populous city, in 1981. He was reelected three times. In 1990, he was elected to represent Vermont’s at-large congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives. In 1991, Sanders co-founded the Congressional Progressive Caucus. He served as a congressman for 16 years before being elected to the U.S. Senate in 2006. In 2012, he was reelected by a large margin, capturing almost 71% of the popular vote.

1981 – 2016 = 35 years.  Tax Supported.  Seems like a career to me.  Let’s treat him as a member of that Political Class (and from the far, far Left side as well).  What DOES he describe himself as, if not a career politican – you IS one!  And all that comes with that.

Co-founder of GraniteGrok, my concern is around Individual Liberty and Freedom (and how Government is taking that away from us). My fight, from a Conservative (with small “L” libertarian leanings) and evangelical Christian perspective, is with the Progressives that are forcing a collectivized and secular humanistic future upon us. As TEA Party activist, citizen journalist (and pundit!), my goal is to use the New Media to advance the radical notions of America’s Founders back into our culture again.
